Hornady is known for making some pretty high-tech bullets – but that doesn’t mean the hallowed Nebraskan company has forgotten the basics. This 223 Rem ammo features the unsophisticated yet reliable full metal jacket boat tail projectile, which is just as good for plinking away as it is covering longer distances!

This round’s 55 grain bullet departs from a 24” barrel’s muzzle at a rate of 3,240 fps, which is apples to apples the same as the Army’s 5.56 M193 load. The FMJBT’s aerodynamic frontal profile and drag-reducing tapered base pair up to give the bullet a G1 ballistic coefficient of 0.243. If you’re aiming out to 200 yards, the bullet only has to rise by about 2.19”. If you’re aiming to 100 yards instead, its trajectory will peak at a mere 0.48”.

This round’s bullet will not expand after it lands inside of soft tissue, so it is not optimal for hunting, but it is also steel-free and not able to attract a magnet. Hornady only loads brand new reloadable brass cases of their own creation, as well as the consistent propellant/primer pairings which serve up constant recoil and ballistics.
